life observations

when i wake up early enough to workout i have a more positive attitude and have more energy...but i normally can't do that two days in a row...not just yet..

i can't seem to understand why people really want to be miserable in life...it really seems like that's how they look at life and want to be...i can't live that way...life is too short to just be sad all the time...

now don't get me wrong we all have our moments and i am NOT talking about people having a moment or two or three that happens to the BEST of us...

i am talking about our right NASTY people...it takes to much energy

i don't get why people still gossip and we are dag on near 30

i don't talk to certain people as much as i used to...some because we are all just busy and i know that when we pick up the phone or see each other nothing has changed...others because its just not the same and we simply have grown apart for whatever reasons...still mostly good folks just not in my inner circle...

do i really have an inner circle??? i have some people that are really close to me but that's just a few...i find myself hanging with my family more than friends...and the friends i do hang with are like family...

i am a dlisted person? what does that mean??? i am not the fly girl that gets invited to all the parties...i don't belong to a "group" of young professionals that hang out at certain spots on the regular basis and all know each other...

i kinda like being dlisted though...as much as i want to get out and meet new people, i feel safe in my little bubble all by myself...its drama FREE (and there is plenty of drama going on in these circles) and as much as i have been thinking about "dating" i am still not ready and honestly i really just don't have time to concern myself with anyone else's feelings

i love talking to people...talking about dreams and hopes and what they want to do with their lives...especially young people...

i need to revamp Kiamsha...like serious this summer i need to sit down and figure out what will make the senior year for those who started with us 4 years ago the BEST that they have ever had...but i am going to have to streamline my life...CLEARLY i can't do Kiamsha, Music & Morals and other meetings and speaking engagements...and the Board...i gotta sit and figure out what i really want to do and say this is what i am going to do this is it and this is all...you know practicing the art of NO

you know that saying, "its not what you know its how you know" its true...its making connections and knowing people that helps people move up in this life, its all about networking, but you can't only fake talent for so long so eventually you have to SHOW and PROVE so have the talent anyway...

why do people get on the train with music BLASTING on a phone or whatever withOUT headphones? i mean come on dude and you playing Gucci mane...seriously? naw you are a bama...

why does Jackie poo look HAWWT in the Jamie Foxx blame it video....i mean seriously i now hav a MAJOR crush on this dude...i am also diggin Mr. Jackson's swag in the video...man oh man...that's how my dad used to be before he got sick...just swag

the Senate voted to end the voucher program in DC...not so much a good idea...i have seen a lot of students do EXTREMELY well in charter schools that wouldn't have done well at all in public or traditional private schools...so much for the guarantee of good education for all...but maybe they will really work to make public schools creative and meet the needs of all students

a lot of young people that folks would love to classify as 'bad' or having "behavorial problems" are normally bored out of their minds and need more stimulation or they may need more one on one attention...

there is nothing wrong with admitting that you need help sometimes, its a sign of strength

eating heathly isn't really hard once you get used to it...

love is patient and love is kind is really the truth...relationships are hard work, but they aren't THAT HARD...that was a major lesson learned for me...and that applys to all relationships, romantic or friendship...

treating people like you want to be treated goes a long way and understanding that not everyone loves you and has your back takes you an even longer distance...but here is the key no matter what learning to accept people for who they are flaws and all is the most important piece...because in the end that all any of us want is just be accepted and respected for who we are...the good the not so good the bad and the ugly...

love live life proceed progress people

from what i've read Michelle Rhee is really coming and shaking up the public school system. be that as it may, parents and students need to have choices until the current system is modified.

you're right about the "bad" students. some of my most difficult students are also the brightest and in need of many and interesting things to do. they keep me on my toes, that's for sure.
